Yellow Dots Inform First Responders of Critical Medical Information

yellow dotSheriff Vincent F. DeMarco wants to remind residents that Yellow Dot medical information kits for vehicles and homes are available through his Office and may be obtained by calling the Sheriff’s Office’s Community Relations Unit at (631) 852-3763. The kits are made available through the NYS Sheriff’s Association, in collaboration with local Sheriff’s Offices, and are distributed to the public free of charge.
The Yellow Dot kit contains a medical information card and a Yellow Dot program decal. Participants complete the card, attach a recent photo, place it in the glove compartment of their vehicle, and place the Yellow Dot decal on the rear driver’s side window. First responders arriving at the scene of an emergency will be alerted by the Yellow Dot decal to look for the medical information card in the glove compartment. It may also be used in a participant’s residence to alert first responders when they enter someone’s home.
The Sheriff’s Office has distributed than 10,000 Yellow Dot to County residents since the programs’ inception in 2013.
For more information about the Yellow Dot Program, visit the Sheriff’s Office’s website at www.SuffolkSheriff.com and look under the Community Programs menu.
